Eclipse Trip Report with Videos in 4K
I've been collecting travel footage for years but only just started to edit it together. This is all from my cruise vacation 12/12/15 with a 5 night Western Caribbean itinerary on the Eclipse.
I'm not quite sure about format at this point so we'll see how this one goes. Feedback is encouraged. The videos change starting after episode 2 where there is a lot less of me talking and a lot more of the ship. Please excuse my camera work. This was a brand new camera and the first video I shot with it is what you see here. I was still getting used to focus, ISO, digital stabilization etc.
Click on the red episode headings below for videos. They are in a playlist that will auto-play the next video
